At the beginning of the 2nd set. Billy and Brent switched instruments and they started goofing off. Finally they break it up and bob says, "We got it straight now" and The drums start for Playin. I laughed my ass off. A great show. My 1st west coast outdoor middle of the afternoon show. Wonderful Crazy Fingers, Just awesome.

Best sounding aud....
The sound of this recording is one of the bet auds of all time. Combined with Jay Ashley....wow!! Download this at all costs. Very good show also.

"vote yes on 12"
Cool Billy Graham intro. Crunchy slide solo on Red Rooster 1:50ff, extra crunchy, scrapping strings at 4:50ff. Rousing Tennessee final chorus at 7:45ff. Funny fan request at end of Loser: “play—the stock market!” Great Bobby rain improv words in Looks Like Rain 5:45ff, followed by great Jerry midi guitar 6:45ff. An okay china>rider. FANTASTIC tense build up in Saint 10:00ff, w/ great 'what the f*** are you going to do about it' by Bobby around 13:30. Quick tempo Touch (first performed the month before on 9/15) w/ the original Hunter lyrics 'say your piece and piss off'. Spirited, nascent Throwing Stones (w/ loose ending). Bob Weir says “remember to vote yes on 12 if you can vote” around 7:00 of Sugar Magnolia (CA initiative against nuclear proliferation; eventually passed: http://bit.ly/17HAHDA). Cool Baby Blue.

Glad to hear this old friend again
I was at this show, it was transcendent. The second of the first pair of shows ever at Frost. I especially remember being in a trance-like state during Lost Sailor/Saint of Circumstance. I wouldn't trade my life and times for anything on earth.

One of the best sounding Auds on the Archive, hell it may be the best, much better than the SBDs of this show in any case and I'm usually a soundboard guy. The band sounds like it's right in front of you. The bass response, for example during Drums, is insane! In fact this is the first AUD I've heard that actually sounds like you are there at the show! But that's just a small part of the equation, the playing is fantastic and that's what makes this show my favorite of '82. Crazy Fingers is to die for and contains a sort-of Spanish Jam interlude and then races off into a double time jam. Playing in the Band is exploratory if a tad short and Lost Sailor/Saint is just stunningly emotional. Man this is some good Dead and could be a Dick's Picks, or whatever they call it now, as is.

In Celebration of 10-10-10
In celebration of this auspicious date in history: 10-10-10. Some of us are celebrating that we are even still alive (few of us of the "Hip/Revolution/Anti-war" crowd ever thought we were going to live until past age 30 -- it just goes to show you don't always know).
And I here now re-affirm: This concert (the recording and performance) is a perfect 10. I will not say anything more regarding the "crowd."
Have audited hundreds of AUD's, but I proclaim that this still The finest GD AUD On The Internet.
And once again, finally, I have nothing more to add.

Rango was, in fact, suspected by a dirigible in front of the stage blocking everyone's view. I know; I put him there. Whirling noiselessly through the black hole of space...

TEAR IT UP JERRY
Wow, i think it's a fine coincedence(?) that this show and the show that must not be named from cornell both start out with a high energy minglewood, this in my opinion is a show of that caliber if you will, a great minglewood, a superb CC Rider, a good playin > crazy fingers, as always not fade away is a very good.

This is one of the best aud recording in this site. Mics had to be almost on the monitors. This recording defines what a "mouth" tape sounds like.

I agree with all that is stated below...except that this is the best aud on the site. That is a highly debateable claim, which is only a good thing. Just more reason to keep listening! Super good/high energy here. Playin' is great (if abbreviated), as is all the pre-drums selection. China>Rider is very good. This is a great Aud. that just seems to get better as it goes. The Frost was sweet!

This show is so solid I almost couldn't believe it when I first heard it. The person who posted first is right, it gets down into your soul. It grooves just right and makes you feel good. Enjoy this one!

Great Sound! Great Show!
Wow - the hype is true! This is about as good as an audience recording can be. The sound of Garcia's guitar in particular is just stunning. Bob's is right there as well. I could listen to this one all day long.

You're right, Evan.

Also, I'm curious to know where 'mid-maine' is from...

a jay ashley bertha remaster of a sick aud and there's only one review? people, this is sweet. it would be a worthy download even if these frost shows weren't SICK. ok, as phil mentioned in his book and one can vibe through tapes (i was never lucky or intrepid enough to make it to the frost), it was a mellow scene without over-the-top-clonk-your-head-warlocks-madness at the frost. however, i love mellow just-holding-back-the-mother-load-perfection. this has it in spades with one of the best auds out there. do yourselves a favor . . .
